SELF-DRIVING CAR MUST DRIVE "WELL" IN REGULAR CONDITION … SOUNDS EASY ? READ THIS BEFORE AND THEN TELL

Human drivers don't have the sharp reflexes of ADAS.

But they have only 1 accident in average every 100 000 km and 3 fatalities in average every billion km (OECD).

Drivers that have the best reflexes are in average the Young ones - 18 to 25 - (biology).

However, they also have much more accident than the 50 years old drivers (not as fast as they used to be when they were 20).

Well, it seems that finally road safety is not mainly a matter of fast reflexes in case of emergency (of course it may help). The explaination is that experienced drivers ANTICIPATE and apply rules of cautiousness adapted to context, never to be in emergency situations. Then they simply do not need fast reflexes. They control their risk.

NEXYAD provides the technology SafetyNex (that computes the risk that the driver - human or not - is currently taking) that can transform your high tech level 3 AD system into an experienced level 5 one : rules of cautiousness are integrated into SafetyNex and your AD system will be aware of the risk it is currently taking (then will become adaptive to risk). 

So, as we could validate that SafetyNex technology uds with human driver can reduce accident rate by 20%, it appears that with an artificial driver, SafetyNex can also be very useful by making AD System adaptive to driving risk.

AD system is NOT a complexification of ADAS. All the prospective estimations about needed computing power and potential date of launching for level 4 and 5 are compltely wrong because they base their estimation on the need for accurate detection of "everything" (wich is quite impossible). This is not the way humans do. ANTICIPATION is used to let more time for detection (lower cost for electronics that do not need to be as fast as we think), and to avoid most emergency situations : those avoided emergency situations (based on cautiousness rules to aplly whatever you detect something or NOT) will not transform into accident of course. ADAS are still usefull of course, but like for human drivers, they are there to palliate the errors of anticipation.

Complete disruption, new mindset.
